A Small Bite of the Big Apple
By Team Spirit | 5 June 2017
Kristy, our Venues Manager, recently visited New York to check out some amazing hotels and unique venues on a fabulous trip, kindly arranged by our great friends and local contacts at NYC & Company.
In three jam-packed days of show-rounds and ubiquitous NY hospitality, Kristy got a real a flavour of the Big Apple and a clearer understanding of why this most iconic of cities could prove the perfect backdrop for your next overseas corporate event.
The wonderful Conrad Hotel was Kristy’s base – perfectly situated in Manhattan, only minutes from many of the must-see landmarks. Being so centrally located meant getting uptown and downtown was a doddle. She hopped in a few Yellow taxis – well, you would, wouldn’t you? – and she rode the Subway… but Kristy reckons the most rewarding way to get around is on foot, as it meant she could really take in the city and its stunning skyline. Here are here 3 top picks from the trip:
One World Observatory
Opened to huge acclaim in spring 2015, One World Observatory is a state-of-the-art observation deck in the new World Trade Centre. An excellent site for incentive groups to experience as well as having dedicated space to organise privatised events.
The Redbury NYC
A great lifestyle hotel with 241 bedrooms and 7 suites. Previously known as the Martha Washington Hotel. The hotel comes at a competitive price point and suitable for small meetings and incentive based groups. The largest meeting room holds 180 theatre capacity.
InterContinental New York Times Square
Excellent meeting hotel located just off Times Square. The hotel has 575 well-appointed bedrooms and 29 suites, with 11 large size meeting rooms which can hold up to 425 theatre capacity.
